Abstract

According to the IPCC, global warming is mostly attributable to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from fossil fuel combustion. The transportation sector accounts for about 20% of greenhouse gas emissions and is the second largest emitter in Korea, trailing only the industrial sector. Within the transportation sector, road transportation dominates with an emission share of over 80%. Therefore, reducing transportation’s impact on the environment should require transforming the current automobile-based transport system into a more energy efficient, low carbon and eco-friendly one.
